Jagged Alliance is back – and it is all about the unique mix of turn based tactics, fierce battles, squad management and crazy mercenary personalities.
It is 1988 on the caribbean island group of San Hermanos. A corrupt leader has the islands in his grasp ... yet a group of rebels fights for democratic values and freedom. However, once the head of the rebels is arrested, the insurgents quickly dissolve. Arriving on the island, the player’s mission is to help the rebellion before things take a turn for the worse.
Take control of your own band of mercenaries, lead them into battle and manage your resources wisely. Fight back for freedom, sector by sector, turn by turn. Like the original Jagged Alliance series, Jagged Alliance Flashback gives you the choice to use your preferred tactics and build your squad around it – rush in with heavy armed troops or take the high road of distance shots and sniping.

Is it as advanced as Jagged Alliance: Online Reloaded?: No Does it seem like I went back in time for graphics and game play?: Yes Does the non-free rotating camera angle drive you friggin nuts because it locks at 45 degree angles?: Yes Was it a fun 40 hours of game play? Definitely. I've pretty much loved and hated every Jagged Alliance game and would still buy any new ones that came out. I really wish it could get the type of a budget like XCOM, since honestly, I like the storyline a lot better in Jagged Alliance. All negatives aside, it is still a fun game to play. I find it highly amusing shooting someone in the face point blank range in this game and seeing their body fly 8 squares away.
The Jagged Alliance franchise has been waiting for a worthy continuation for many years. Both Back in Action and Crossfire didn't earn the appreciation that the early games of the series had. Now Flashback has all it takes to do the job well. It doesn't try to simplify things or change them only for the sake of change. It refreshes things, improves, streamlines and so it seems the Jagged Alliance will finally receive a decent continuation. Bear in mind the title is still an early access thing now, so some aspects may still be polished or tweaked (I doubt the developers will decide to act against the popular demands and ruin something). So if the price is not holding you back and you enjoyed the Jagged Alliance series with its micromanagement, detailed combat, hit locations, precise planning, multitude of weapons and skill combinations, you will feel at home here. And the map editor will allow to keep you busy with this game for long. Don't expect next-gen visuals and sound, it's all in the gameplay!
